Skies: ultimately it is a personal decision. In my case the decision was made for me since both hips deteriorated to the point of collapse. If you decide to go the surgery route, please be confident that your doctor is giving you the best advice available. Maybe get a second opinion prior to surgery (it made me more at ease). Also, follow all the doctor's instructions and be patient - it is a long and trying recovery. GOOD LUCK.
